Culinary School can be very different prices depending on the school that you go to. A smaller lesser known culinary school is going to be considerably less expensive than a more accredited and well known school. Location of the school is also going to affect the price of culinary school, for example studying abroad at France's Le Cordon Bleu is going to cost you more than a cooking school in Orlando. The length of the culinary school program will also change the price. For a good school with a one year program your going to pay $30,000 or more but the education shouldn't take long to pay for itself.
